Week 1 to Week 2
September 4, 2013 - Mike Mathison
Big Red -- Had an easy time in beating Detroit Central Collegiate, but will not have an easy time against Cleveland Benedictine. Big Red must control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball to move to 2-0.
Brooke -- A tough opener for the Bruins, at No. 2 Morgantown and their talented Chazzy Thomas. Brooke faces an athletic Taylor Allderdice that dropped a 47-27 decision at Martins Ferry. If Bruins get the young ones going, I really like their chances.
Buckeye Local -- The Panthers are coming off a 40-0 loss toPittsburgh Westinghouse and host Union Local, which is coming off a win at Monroe Central that few saw coming. The Jets are under new head coach Bruce Stiles and enter the game with all the momentum.
Catholic Central -- 34 points in a row to beat Bellaire was a great was for Crusaders to start the season. They must go to Frontier and take care of business early. Central's run game was really good against Bellaire and more performances like that will make the faithful smile.
Edison -- The Wildcats face a really tough Carrollton team that lead St. Clairsville 21-0 after the first quarter of a scrimmage. The Warriors are big up front and it will be a big test for Edison, which is coming off a really nice win at Oak Glen.
Harrison Central -- The Huskies should be 1-0 and coach Justin Kropka's biggest task this week is making his kids turn the corner, forget about the mess of a call last week and focus on the Weir Red Riders.
Indian Creek -- This is not your East Liverpool team of the past two years. The Potters are tough up front and can run the ball, something that Redskins coach Andrew Connor can admire.
Madonna -- The Dons visit Tusky Catholic at 7 p.m. Saturday in a game that was moved from 1:30 p.m. because portable lights are being brought in. Madonna needs to own the line of scrimmage and give Ross Comis time to throw the ball.
Oak Glen -- The Golden Bears face a tall task this week because No. 1 QB Chase Hartley is out with a broken leg and now the offense must be led by one of three players. But, be guaranteed that Beaver Local is not feeling sorry for Oak Glen.
Toronto -- The Red Knights lost to a bigger, better Wellsville team, but did a lot of nice things. Toronto must find a passing game to help offset a talented running game. This team can do some really good things on both sides of the ball.
Weir -- The Riders are a far better team than a year ago and will make teams take notice this year. With a new offensive system, time is a necessity to help things click, but, once they do, Weir will be able to put points on the board.
